Trae Young’s recovery from his right ankle sprain was so fast, Chelsea Lane thought it was like something out of a comic book. “If you ask her, she thinks I have, like, Wolverine blood… she doesn’t understand how I healed up so fast,” Young said of the Hawks’ Executive Director of Athletic Performance and Sports Medicine. “The way it looked, when it first happened to now, it’s kind of crazy. But I was giving her props, too, because she deserves it all.”

Trae Young got the chance to meet Basketball Hall of Fame broadcaster Doris Burke while in Las Vegas for NBA Summer League, and the Atlanta Hawks rookie is a huge fan of hers. Young tweeted that it was the first time he has ever been starstruck, calling the meeting a “dream come true.” The 19-year-old has met lots of sports stars and celebrities – from Steph Curry to Pharrell – but Burke was the one who stood out for him.
